As Parag Agrawal takes on the role of Twitter's new CEO replacing Jack Dorsey, Indians went crazy across the Internet to either celebrate, or pass lame jokes. However, the most Indian habit that plagues every working individual is," how much does he/she earn?" It happened with Agrawal too, as Google Trends showed top queries related to salary details of Parag Agrawal.

Google Trends lit up with several queries about Parag Agrawal's personal details on the night of November 29. The top one we observed was “Parag Agrawal New Worth”, followed by “parag agrawal twitter salary.” Even the social media was full of comments and tweets regarding Agrawal's overall earning after taking on the new role.

Parag Agrawal rules Google Search

While the “twitter new ceo” query seems normal, the rest of them reflect what most of India cares for. “parag agrawal wife” was among the top searches, followed by “parag agrawal iit rank.”. Yeah, the last one got us cracking too. This one probably must have come from IIT students worrying about their net worth in a few years time.

On Twitter, several users tagged Agrawal in their tweet, requesting to bring the edit button now, or help people with blue verification badges. Some of them even requested to increase their followers. The craziest ones even reached out to his wife, requesting her to convey their message.

While a major side of the Internet went crazy will trolling and asking stupid questions, a lot of them also congratulated the Indian-origin CEO for his promotions. Agrawal has been working with Twitter for over 10 years and had originally joined the team as an engineer. Agrawal joins the elite list of Indian origin CEOs of the world's biggest tech firms (Satya Nadella looks after Microsoft while Sundar Pichai is heading Google).

The announcement came as a surprise for many after ex-CEO Jack Dorsey shared his resignation letter on a personal tweet. Dorsey, who founded Twitter Inc, said that it was time for the company to flourish without having a founder's vision. He will be on the board for a while to aid for a smooth transition of power and responsibilities.

But what is Parag Agrawal's salary as Twitter CEO?

We have decided to quench the thirst of millions of Indians by answering this. “Beginning on the start date, your base salary will be $1,000,000 per year. You will remain a participant in the Company’s executive bonus plan with a new target bonus percentage of 150% of your annual base salary. Your actual earned bonus (if any) for 2021 will be based on the different salary and bonus percentages that applied before and after the start date. All earned bonuses (if any) will be subject to Twitter’s bonus plan as in effect from time to time,” says Agrawal's new offer letter.

There you go, Indians and IIT students/aspirants.
